Can I Use Extra-Virgin Olive Oil for Roasting?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I like to roast vegetables (broccoli, peppers, potatoes, etc.) in the oven to serve as a side with dinner. I usually bake these at 450°F for about 25 minutes. Is it safe to use extra-virgin olive oil for this? If not, which oil would you suggest for this?

Editor: I’ve never had problems roasting with extra-virgin olive oil. While it doesn’t have a high smoking point, the oil is fine for roasting vegetables and imparts great flavor.

Readers, what kind of oil do you like to use for roasting vegetables?
